Food Science & Nutrition

Overview

The Department of Nutrition & Dietetics, a vibrant department, focusses on holistic integrated teaching approach with hands on experience and research. The genesis of Department of Nutrition & Dietetics was in the year 1994 with Nutrition & Dietetics undergraduate program. This program was offered in combination with Zoology, Chemistry and Human Development. Under new education policy, Nutrition and Dietetics is offered as a dual major (B.Sc. NDHD) program .To meet the ever-rising demand of this subject the department has introduced single major B. Sc (Hons) program in Food Science and Nutrition in the year 2022. Undergraduate programme is carefully curated for emerging Nutrition Professionals. To develop evidence based health and nutrition plans, resources and bring sustainable change, Post Graduate Programme in Food Science and Nutrition was started in 2010. This programme was designed to fulfil the students' requirement for higher education. The Department has been recognized as a Research Centre by Bengaluru City University (BCU) in the year 2014 for PhD enrolment. The comprehensive programs are integrated with internships, workshops and outreach programs. Our outreach programs prioritise school nutrition education and community nutrition which contributes to the holistic development of students. Research work further explores inquisitive minds to translate the science of nutrition to formulate novel food products and nutrition programs for the community. The competent faculty with a well-designed curriculum has enabled students to have a competitive edge in pursuing promising careers in the health care sector, food industry, academia and government.

  • DNA Nutrischolar Award 2020 (organised by Dupont)
    DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences is a global leader in innovative and sustainable solutions in the food, wellness, pharma and biotech markets. Every year, DuPont Diet & Biosciences organises ‘DuPont NutriScholars Awards to invite novel food product idea proposals from students pursuing Food Science. The program acts as a pathway for food science students to enroll, innovate and discover the food industry’s environment. Three students from the Dept of Food Science & Nutrition registered for this contest and the preparation began in September, where the students chose to participate under the category “Convenient and Nutritious Breakfast”. After a few brainstorming sessions, the product idea was decided and the proposal was prepared under the guidance of Dr Sangeeta Pandey (HoD) and Mentor Dr V Padma. Our proposal was selected in the Phase I of the contest and the idea was selected for the Phase II of the contest .Our team was in the top 20 selected for Phase II. The students – Harshita K, Henakshi P and Shireen F from PG Food Science & Nutrition – along with the mentor and the HoD, presented their novel product idea titled “Brekkie Muffin Mix” in front of the panel of eminent dignitaries and giants of the food industry. The Brekkie Muffin Mix team was one among the top 20 teams chosen all over India and among the top 5 in the “Quick and Nutritious Breakfast” category.

  30. Students are advised to check their mails regularly as all communication related to placements will be sent through mails.
  31. It is mandatory that once you receive an Intent Letter/Offer Letter from the Company, a copy must be submitted to the Placement Office. Failing which, the end semester examination Hall Ticket/results will be withheld.
